Default Re: what did you do to your motor bike today?

Me, I'm still brazing my new tank together. All I'll say is this: Alumiweld can be tricky stuff. You gotta do it right, or you get to do it over. And apparently I'm not done learning how to work the stuff well.
I'll have a bit of grinding to do also; my beads are strong but they are NOT pretty. Kinda lumpy and irregular. S'aright though, I keep telling myself I'm gaining experience, as well as making more work for myself.
It'll be a pretty solid tank when I'm done though (if I haven't retired by then).

PS. Yet another good reason for me not taking any pictures: I'd hate to tempt the more experienced welders here into pointing and laughing. By the time anybody outside of me sees the tank, it'll have paint on it.

"There is nothing wrong with wanting a motorbike that is an extension of your personal taste and fashion sense; if you must ride somewhere, I say do it with style!"
